Every day we go to school, we study, we go home. But something may be missing... HAVING FUN! Kadrina is a very small village, nevertheless we have many extra-curricular activities that everyone can join in. You can read a bit about every activity below and choose the right one(s) for you.
|Troup Name: Cadencia
Style: different styles
Frequency: twice a week
Instructors: Marge Mägi, Helena Mägi
The idea to create a dance group came in Spring 2003 when seven girls performed at school with their own dance. Starting from October 2003, this group has functioned as a 'hobby club'. The instructor is Marge Mägi and the classes are from September to June, usually twice a week, but also extra classes, if they are needed. The group's name "Cadencia" comes from Spanish and it means 'rhythm'. Its main aim is to spend free time by developing creativity and proving yourself. Cadencia has participated in many festivals, including 'Koolitants' ('School dance') and they have been also invited to Turkey for performances.
Frequency: once a week
Instructors: Helena Mägi, Egert Eenmaa, Ebe Abner
In Kadrina, there has always been an interest for folk traditions, especially for dancing. So every year new groups have been created, provided that a sufficient number of people will participate in. Groups are made in different age levels or by gender, starting from children and ending with adults. They also participate in the great Estonian folk dance celebration called 'Tantsupidu', which takes place after every four years.
In Kadrina Secondary School we have different types of choirs, where everyone can participate in: Maiden-choir, Children's choir, Toddler-choir, Mixed-choir and Church-choir. The conductors are Elene Altmäe, Merike Trepp, Silja Uhs, Saale Kreen. Classes are usually once or twice a week and choirs perform at many school, regional and international events. They also participate in the great Estonian national music celebration called 'Laulupidu', which takes place after every four years.
